Whew, busy, busy, busy. I have also been working hard on smoothing out our daughter's difficulties with sleep. With all of the commotion from the past few months she had difficulties staying in bed or her crib to fall asleep. We tried technique after technique all of which seemed to fail. With two sleep coaches in the family there were many suggestions. We finally found that timed visits did the trick; this was my last hope, I sincerely thought that if I checked in on Baby Bel after saying goodnight she would be too disturbed to settle down and sleep. Boy was I wrong, she settled down like a dream! It still takes her a while to fall asleep, but I have a feeling that she is anticipating our anxiety and is not looking forward to the next (and hopefully final) move.
We will see what the next month brings and how she reacts to the move.
The moral of this story is that like everything else in life there is always more than one way to solve a problem. If your choice does not work after a reasonable attempt, decide what isn't working and try again. Listen to your instincts, to the people you have chosen to guide you and be persistent and consistent.
